A Chinese noodle seller was almost killed by a turtle when it fell from a window of a 45-storey building.
Yao Chen was chatting to customers outside his restaurant in Chongqing, southwest China, when the foot-long amphibian fell around 40 feet from a flat above, hitting him on the foot and breaking his big toe.
The 34-year-old restaurateur said: "If I had been standing just a fraction more to the left then it would have hit me on the head. The size of it and the speed it was falling at means I probably would have been killed."
